Summary

Sigmund Freud, the "Father of Psychoanalysis," remains a towering figure even 73 years after his death. His development of such therapeutic innovations as the "talking cure," free association, and dream interpretation revolutionized our understanding of human thought and behavior. Featuring more than 170 images and at least 15 facsimile documents, including rare memorabilia from the Sigmund Freud Archives, Explorer of the Minddetails the life of this iconoclastic genius, examining how he developed his famous theories. It also reveals his struggles with his own neuroses and how they led to his pioneering self-analysis, in which he refined his still-unproven techniques by applying them to himself.
